Hi, saw the news today online, just wanna see would you buy ?

for those who dun own an iphone yet, would you go buy it ?

for those who had the previous model, would you upgrade to 4S ?

share with me your view...

I am using iPhone 4 and will upgrade to 4S when my SingTel voucher arrive in Jan n if the voucher (expiry) can't wait for iPhone 5 to come.

I usually purchase extended warranty for my iPhones. Been useful as phone's built quality not good...

How much longer can you extend it for

For the voucher? Personally, never tried. Usually valid for 3 months but a friend tried n extended it to 6 months.

For extended warranty, you can extend 1 year for around S$110. Must purchase the extended warranty while iPhone still within warranty.

I'm interested in the Siri but not sure whether it recognize singlish. Well I'll still go for it becos I'm a iSLUT.

So getting the I4S with the SIRI "killer" app ~ quite convinced that it's going to kill the local cellphone market if it can overcome our linguistic issue.....

just to clarify... whichever model of iphone, if it the apps hang is the apps software having problem...

if it the loading of internet slow, it not ur iphone software or which model problem. it's due to too many users using smartphone nowadays and data bandwidth is shared among all users at a location. No matter which mobile operators u r subscribing to.

I was holding HTC before this current 3GS and when i change to iphone, partly due to peer pressure, i could not transfer all my contacts from HTC ...and i really took me quite some time to get my contact in.

I cannot imagine i would need to go thru these again if i change to other model...thus getting a 4S sounds like a rational decision for me, although there is nothing in 4S that really attracts me.....

You: "Siri, how far more to the pin?"

your iphone:"100 yds, water hazard at the end of green 112yds - use your 52deg, 3/4 swing. Swing tempo - "1" - "2". repeat "1" - "2". Remember weight of your left!"


How nice if this is possible.... hehe
